Fresh Burgundy Truffles
Truffles are one of the most decadent foods in the world. They are incredibly difficult to find as well as highly sought-after, so much so that chefs around the world covet them for their powerful earthy flavor that adds luxury to any dish. Unable to simply farm them, truffles must be hunted for by well-trained hunters, with the help of their trusty hounds, in wooded areas in France, Italy, and Spain; thought the specific areas are kept secret and fiercely guarded. Both beautiful and delicious, truffles can be cooked into a risotto, shaved on top of a simple dish of pasta, or even used to elevate scrambled eggs. In season, we receive several shipments of fresh truffles directly from our growers every week. Our truffles are always fresh!
The Tuber Uncinatum Chatin, also known as Burgundy truffle, has a black skin made up of small diamond shaped pyramids. The flesh is dark brown, branched with white marbling. Its perfume is characterized by a delicate mixture of mushroom and hazelnut. Burgundy truffles are available and in season from September to January in France, Italy and Spain.
